Viltrox Luna 30-300mm T4 full frame zoom lens now available to purchase

We first saw the Viltrox 30-300mm T4 full frame zoom lens at NAB 2024 in Las Vegas. The lens is now available to purchase for $65,000 USD and it will start shipping within 2 months.

Viltrox also has a 22-222mm T2.8 S35 Luna zoom and a 65mm 42-420mm T5.6 Luna zoom in the works that we should know more about later in the year.

The LUNA 30-300mm T4 is on display at the Viltrox booth (Midwest and French Streets #269) at Cine Gear so attendees will be able to test out the lens themselves.

We first saw a prototype of this lens at NAB a few months ago. Above you can see my interview with Viltrox at the show. 

Viltrox told me that it was created as a statement lens to showcase optical quality at the highest level.

The lens has a constant T4 aperture across the entire zoom range and it covers image circles of up to 46.5mm.

The lens perfectly covers full-frame sensors without vignetting, even at the extreme ends of the zoom range. With a 46.5mm image circle diameter, it also ensures comprehensive coverage for larger formats like ARRI LF and RED VV:

FF: 36.00mm x 24.00mm

LF: 36.70mm x 21.54mm

VV: 40.96mm x 21.60mm

To get another reference as to just how big it is, above you can see it next a Viltrox 75mm 1.33x anamorphic lens.

With a constant T4.0 aperture throughout the 30-300mm focal range, the lens ensures consistent brightness and shallow depth of field. It has an 8-blade diaphragm, that is claimed to produce pleasing bokeh.
